CALGARY – Three people were taken to hospital on Monday following a violent attack near Rocky Mountain House.

Mounties were called to a home on the O’Chiese First Nation shortly after 2 a.m.

When they arrived, emergency crews found three people inside the home suffering from stab wounds: two 21-year-old men and an 18-year-old male.

Two of the victims were taken to hospital in Rocky Mountain House in non-life-threatening condition, and one was released at the scene.

RCMP took two suspects into custody.

Keith Beverbones, 23, has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of assault.

In addition, a 16-year-old boy is facing one count of assault with a weapon and two breaches of a probation order. His name cannot be released due to the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Both individuals have been remanded in custody and are set to appear in court on Jan. 6, 2016.

Rocky Mountain House is located about 200 kilometres northwest of Calgary and about 200 kilometres southwest of Edmonton.
